Last weekend I spent a gorgeous Sunday hanging out with Kristen Gardner, helping her to photograph Beth and Kevin’s wedding at Raspberry Plain in Leesburg. The day was perfect in all kinds of ways, and I had a blast second-shooting. Kristen has some amazing images on her blog and I couldn’t seem to pick a favorite, but I really love her ceremony shots. The garden at Raspberry Plain has this beautiful hedge archway, and Kristen managed to sneak around back to capture a really stunning through-the-archway shot of the vows. I was at the end of the aisle, squatting trying to get out of the way, and I was super relieved to see I’m not in the shot because it’s a great photo! So definitely go have a peek, and I’ll show you a handful of my own random favorites:
Beth and Kevin chose to see each other before the ceremony, so we had tons of time to take portraits of just the two of them. Lots more on Kristen’s blog!
Love this sweet moment between Beth and her dad, just before the walk down the aisle:
The ring bearer was too cute – he stole the show for a minute here.
The reception was so festive with twinkle lights and pretty details:
And then the party started! This next series cracks me up. Sing it with me now: “Ain’t no mountain high enough…”
“Ain’t no valley low enough…”
“Ain’t no river wiiiiiide enough,”
“To keep me from gettin’ to YOU, babe.”
Kevin’s grandmother also kept me smiling throughout the whole evening – she had so much spunk on the dance floor!
